Ongoing: Abortion Recovery Bible Study Abortion can be one of the most traumatic experiences in a woman’s life. Statistics state that approximately 43% of women have had an abortion by age 43. Many women feel they are not allowed to talk about their abortion experience because it was their “choice.” We offer an 8-week study that helps hurting women find the path to healing through honest, interactive study. With compassion, you will be encouraged and supported as you learn to let go of the hurt and heal. If you need healing from a past abortion we would be honored to walk beside you through your journey. We provide a supportive and confidential environment to facilitate healing and restoration from a past abortion and to bring a sense of hope and purpose for the future.
